Benchmark is in the top of the large rock to the right in this photo.

Found it with Jeepers-GasFree.

Joyful Noise and I were visiting the Mountain with Allison Wonderland and stumbled upon a few benchmarks here. Yay!

The marker is embedded solidly, but is becoming difficult to read as it is visible gouged.

Spotted on my birthday

This is right next to the very cool, CCC era Cliff Lodge. Awesome views of the mountain lakes, even with a little smoke. Why is it called Y when it is marked VABM?

I'm always up at Mt. Spokane in the winter for snowboarding and this gets buried in snow. Very cool to find it on this beautiful Father's day. Also noted a much smaller and older Benchmark just a couple inches away (I think.... it's scratched up pretty bad)

Was up here 2 years ago and saw this. Didn't know then that I could log it. I love this house.

Had been by this once before but didn't know it was there. Discovered it today.

Had stopped at this benchmark many times but didn't know about logging. It was a great Sunday afternoon drive! BM was damaged by something a long time ago, maybe the groomer for the ski area? Elevation 5881 ft!

Mt Spokane Vista House

Found it

Stumbled across this while stopping to find a cache. Impressive views, loved the trip to Spokane!

Beautiful views from up here. Cool old building. Wish I brought the paper for the cache here as well. Also found 2 other nearby markers.

Second of three we discovered while enjoying the view up here.

I have found this benchmark before so it was easy to return to today for logging.
